Hi friends! We have been working on this for a LONG time and we’re so thrilled it’s finally coming to fruition. The La Passacaglia quilt by Willyne Hammerstein has been on my quilty bucket list for SO long. Our plan is to take the original, and reimagine it to make it a little more approachable, attainable, and sew it together, Pink Door style! This version will be larger than the original, which makes the pieces a little easier to work with, and even a beginner can tackle this English Paper Piecing project! Our kit will be done exclusively in Tula Pink fabrics in a rainbow ombré effect and finishes at approximately 80" x 90"! We hope you’ll join us!!
When will it start? Fabric and kits will begin shipping in July, 2021 and run for 18 months. Each month’s blocks will be broken down into manageable chunks so that it’s achievable!
What will it cost? There is a one-time startup cost of $119 for templates and paper pieces, and then $42 (without coordinating thread) or $52 (with 2 coordinating spools of thread) plus shipping each month thereafter. Since we are placing the orders for the materials for the Block of the month so far in advance, unfortunately NO CANCELLATIONS WILL BE PERMITTED. The Millefiori Book must be purchased in advance and it will ship separately.
If you'd prefer to sew along but use your own fabric, we have a third option - we will provide paper pieces and templates for you, and provide a blank cutting assistant for you to fill in on your own with your chosen fabrics, as well as access to the Facebook Group for additional support. This will cost $16.95 per month plus shipping.
Thank you so much for your interest. Signups have officially closed. Signups will open April 6th, 2021, and remain open until spots are full, or May 1st, whichever is sooner. We typically see our blocks of the month fill up rather quickly, so don’t delay!
$7 per month to US domestic locations, $8 per month to Canada, and $11 to INTL locations. Shipping costs can increase at any time; we work with our vendors to ensure we're shipping as inexpensively as possible at all times. However, we reserve the right to increase shipping or fabric costs.
What have people said about our previous block of the month programs?
“My first ever attempt at English paper piecing, and I’m totally hooked! Huge shoutout to Pink Door Fabrics! This is my second BOM with them, and they go above and beyond! The community they have created in the Facebook group is absolutely amazing and I am already hoping it will stay open well after the BOM ends!”
“Wow, the Pink Door team has gone so far above and beyond the expectation for this BOM. I was nervous about doing this, but the videos in the Facebook group have been amazing and I’m loving EPP!”
“I don’t think I’ll ever go back to picking my own fabric for a big project! I love getting the cutting assistants so that I don’t have to think and can just sit down and sew with the extra free time I have.”
A few notes:
